In this article, I will be telling how to have confidence, even if you are insecure or feel worthless. Because trust me, you are NOT.
In middle school and parts of high school especially I can remember times when I didn't really value myself as I should. I can remember staying in situations and relationships where I didn't belong & I didn't leave because I didn't value my worth.
Many things can influence the way we see ourselves. Such as a parent that didn't do their job, a friend who betrayed you, or someone that made you question your worth. Most of us have all been bullied before for something you couldn't control. Such as height, weight, appearance, or income. Us humans are all flawed creatures. None of us are perfect. Everyone has insecurities and has the ability to confront them.
1) Confront your past & pain
Look back to the hard times in your life and observe it. Know that no matter what happened to you, YOU possess the power to succeed and overcome your obstacles. Most of the time when someone wronged you, it's a reflection of them.
2) Act like a celebrity
Find a icon you look up to, and whenever you walk into a room, pretend you are them. I don’t mean to literally say your them but imagine you’re them. For example, Rihanna is definitely a music icon. If you feel insecure or socially awkward, imagine you are them in their skin. Even if you aren’t confident acting like you are will make people think you are then before you know it, you actually will be!
3) Look In the mirror and love all of your imperfections
You need to look yourself in the mirror and see yourself for how you are, and LOVE YOURSELF. It defiantly is easier said than done, but you need to love your insecurities. Because if not they always will be there. Even if you get surgery or photoshop yourself, you need to start with mentally accepting yourself. When someone can tell your insecure and they’re toxic, they will feed off that.
In conclusion, you need to learn from your past and don’t let your past influence how you feel about yourself. Learn and grow, but don’t become a prisoner to it. Becoming confident is a hard thing to become, but once you are, you are a force to be reckoned with. When you are confident, many people are attracted to you automatically.
